An Experienced Decking Contractor
Great for outdoor entertaining, family meals, quiet time or just lazy days, a deck is the ideal addition to your home, whether you are extending or building new. Sollenne Homes is a Lake Ariel decking contractor that can design and build the perfect deck that fits your lifestyle.
New Decks and Deck Extensions
If your home has never had a deck, you’ll love how easy it makes it to entertain and relax outdoors. A new deck adds more living space to your home where you can barbecue, read, or just relax in the beauty of nature -- a real attraction in the beautiful Poconos region!
Adding a deck to your home can also increase its resale value by as much as $8,000. As your partner in home improvement, we can advise you on your options when it comes to deck design, decking material and more.
If you already have a deck but wish it were larger, we can help with that, too! Our decking contractors have assisted many customer in our service area with deck extensions that give you more space to do the things you love. Expanding a deck can give you more room for entertaining, for that outdoor dining set or furniture you’ve been considering but didn’t have the space, for growing a container garden, and just for living!
Having a larger deck can feel like having a bigger house, especially in the best “outdoor living” months of the year, because you have more options for enjoying your home’s outdoor spaces. We’ve worked with many property owners in the Poconos region to extend decks or add all new decks to existing homes, and we’d love to do that for you, too.
Need to Rebuild Your Deck?
If you already have a deck, you might still need to have deck repairs performed, or even to have all or part of your deck rebuilt. How can you tell if your deck has structural problems? Here are some signs that you may need to find a decking contractor to rebuild or repair your deck:
Loose railings: If your railings shake when you grab them, that can be a safety hazard -- especially if you ever have young children over. Many times, deck railings are not added in the most long-lasting way. We can secure your deck railings and replace them if necessary.
Your deck was built on wooden posts that are now rotting: If you have an older deck, it might be supported by wooden posts that are getting weaker due to water damage or age. It’s definitely a good idea to have those posts checked out and possibly replaced before your posts are unable to support the weight of your deck and everything on it!
Loose or sagging boards: If any of the boards in your deck wobble and shake when you walk on them, that’s a sign that some of the parts of your deck have become loose. And if the boards are sagging, they may be past the point of no return. They may have water damage and rotting that can also invite termites to infest them -- too many problems to fix! Let us provide an estimate for repairing your deck and making it safe to enjoy.
Your deck is old and in violation of current building codes: In Pennsylvania, a deck that measures 30 inches above grade level is required to have guard rails along the perimeter with balusters spaced 4 inches or less apart. If you’re not sure your deck meets this safety standard, our decking contractors can help you determine what repairs or upgrades need to be made. This is important not only from a safety standpoint, but in the event that you need to sell your house in the near future.
